A paragraph style with italics at the end.

Feb 10, 2013 1:39 PM

I'm trying to find out if I can make a paragraph style that has an open and closed parenthesis and italics at the end of the paragraph - before the period.

 

For example:

 

Make your breathing and your movement very slow and deliberate, synchronizing them with your partner’s movements. Continue this movement (1 minute).

 

I know it's working with Nested Styles but still cannot find out how to do it.

    But if there is another parenthetical in a paragraph, that nested style will italicise that. Better use a grep style that applies only to the last parenthetical:

     

    \([^)]+\)\.$

     

    \(          opening parenthesis

    [^)]+    'while next character is not ) advance' . . .

    \)          . . . and match the closing parenthesis

    \.           . . . which is followed by a period

    $          at the end of the paragraph
